Torn/Apart Restored

Introducing Pastor Darin and Gloria Carroll. They have an amazing testimony! They just released a book and have recently launched a new Christ centered addiction recovery program, called Heart Revolution. Darin has been a model citizen for the past twelve years, thanks to God and a wife who prayed.

Torn Apart / Restored: An autobiography of a young couple torn apart by drugs, alcohol, violence, prison and divorce.

Authored by Pastor Darin Carroll
Co-authored with Teila Tankersley

Teila Tankersley is a freelance writer from Colorado Springs, CO. She is best known for writing articles that inspire or challenge her readers, she focuses on stories and issues that are relevant in today’s society and this is a book that she is pushing to the lime-light because she is convinced it can and will change lives!

Torn Apart / Restored is a biography of two childhood sweethearts, Darin and Gloria. A young couple tangled up in a turbulent marriage, combative, arrogant and struggling, they eventually make the decision to divorce.

The drama of their lives unfold and just as they are preparing to finalize their divorce; Gloria has a change of heart. Her dilemma - her husband has become involved with a former girlfriend and it only gets worse from there; he is soon charged with murder. Is there any hope of restoring their marriage let alone their lives?

In spite of some overwhelming obstacles Gloria places her faith in Christ and believes wholeheartedly that God is going to do a work in her husband’s heart. Through blind faith she seeks to win him back and along the way she builds a relationship with Christ that is inspiring.

Friends and family can see no hope, yet God is busy orchestrating miracles in the midst of all this drama. A book you have to read to believe.

If you liked Nicky Cruz’s book, “Cross and the switchblade” or if you are a fan of the book,”Fireproof” written by Eric Wilson, Alex Kendrick, and Stephen Kendrick - then you are going to love this!

A book filled with suspense, drama and gang violence, but more importantly, it is interwoven with the quiet, gentle spirit of Christ himself. Just when you think there is no hope, Christ works a miracle and that is when the journey begins.

Gloria and her husband Darin Carroll have an amazing testimony and they now pastor a church in Pueblo, Colorado called Victory Life Ministries. If you are in need of a miracle this is the book for you! Pastor Darin and Gloria Carroll would love to speak at your Church or your next event. A story that will inspire you.

    This is a book that inspires the reader from the first page to the very end. Through all of Darin's trials and heartaches, the message from our Lord remains the same, "I have called you by name, you are mine". We can let go of God but he never lets go of us and continues to fight for us and bring us back to him. This book is for the restored, the people who do not know they even need restoring, and for the ones who have a daily walk with Christ. Torn Apart/Restored is sure to be a blessing to all readers.

  • Thats great you he changed his life and wanted to write a book and you assisted him. However did you EVEN stop to think of the damage you were doing the family the children of the mother and daugher he murdered. They are re-living everything now because of this book and he goes in such detail and using her real name. You guys had no right to place this family through what you did great whatever he changed his life but he has NO compassion for the family where he took a mother and daughter a sister and so much more. They are the ones hurting all so he can say I changed my life and because of all of this. He should be asking for thier forgivness and he should have asked for thier permission prior to even thinking of using her name. But only God can judge him and he will be judged for his lies and misuse of his so called changed life!!!

    Dear Jay,

    In Darin's book the names have been changed to protect identities and only a select few are even mentioned by their real names are you certain that you are referring to Torn Apart / Restored? God Bless you it sounds like you are hurting and are crying out for some resolution in your life.
    Sincerely,
    Teila
